You always need to be in movement? to carry a slackline around you?
Then you need something light and compact! Good for you, you are at the right place!
The Ultra Light Kit is for backpackers who need 100% light equipment to carry around!
He is conceived to slackline up to 22m with a low tension (tensioning need a bit of webbing = primitiv system)
For longer than 15m, you have at least to have the slackline at hips height (or more).
Also sold in 15/20m version : click there
A light version ? Why ? Why not a classic Kit ?
Simply because you will spare 1 Kilogramme compared to classic kits (Kit Primitiv)
To compare, here are the results between the kits :
35m : 1,99 Kg (-0,52Kg compared to the 35m standard Primitiv Kit)
50m : 2,50 Kg (-1,85Kg compared to the 50m standard Primitiv Kit)
With those light versions we would like to offer you the lightest and compactest kit ever. We think that it's the perfect solution for those who like to travel a lot of have not lots of storage place.
What is the Primitiv System ?
Don't worry if you don't know how to perform this installation !
Set it up 2 or 3 times and you will become the chief of Primitiv.
The Set Up video and the user guide are also there to help you.
You will find them in the "Documentation" section and in your order.
The system consist in the use of the slackline itself and carabiners to tighten it. It's way lighter than a kit with a ratchet system. Once you know the trick, it is very fast and easy to rig.
To sum up, it means that you will have to pass and roll the webbing through the carabiners 2/3 times to tighent it. You will need 10/15 minutes the firsts times but then it will become a routine. No more than 5 minutes.
For the light version, we use the girth hitch system to fix the slackline on the opposite side of the tensioning system (less gear). See picture below.
- Beyond 15m, install at least at chest height
- 1 people maximum for tightening
- 45m is the maximum length. The tensioning system (primitiv) use a bit of the webbing. See user guide and video in the "documentation" section.
- The kit can be rigged for a day or 2. But it's better to uninstall it after each session.
- Store your kit, clean and dry, away from U.V, moisture, or heating sources.

- 1x Multisling in Moonwalk, 2,20m long, 2,5cm width. Resistance 29,3kN (with a third loop to use eventually with/as a multiplier)
- 4x Steel carabiners, screw gate, resistance 22kN
- 2x Linelock (25mm width), color according to stock, to adjust the length of the webbing. Resistance 28,2kN

- There it is. You have achieved the 35m frontier and want to go further ? If you want now to tighten 50m, upgrade your kit with the following items : keep your equipment and upgrade it with :
- 50m done ? You're confirmed, congrats! You got the best from the primitiv system. Now turn to :
- The Sky01 Kit. With his pulleys, you will rig way longer, but it will not be the same weight anymore ;)
Slacklining and particularly Highlining are sports having no legal framework or norms concerning the gear or the setup.
Consequently we cannot warranty our gear for Highlining.
Our products are tested by independent labs (Apave) and inside of our company via a process evolving with practice.
The results of those tests have no legal values, they aim to ensure the safety and comfort of using our equipment.
It is the responsibility of the slackliner to choose the right gear with adequate resistance and to have the necessary experience to adapt his installation to his practice.
- Don't rig your slackline across a path,a road or any crossing
- Don't rig your slackline higher than 2m
- Ride on a grassy or soft ground, without roots or rocks
- Always backup your setup
- Never use ratchets for highlining
- Never use urban furniture as anchor point
This equipment is absolutely not made for highlining. Find more information on our website highline.fr
Items cannot be considered as PPE (personal protective equipment)
In progress... You can find a close setup video there. It's the classic primitiv setup which is very close to the Ultra Light Kit.
